Why do you want to work for us at Sainsburys?
May be a common question that should be asked.

I don't work at sainsburys but I would imagine?

How would you deal with a complaint from a customer? I would offer a replacement or a refund for the item an apologise and try my best to diffuse the situation if I could not deal with it I would inform a team leader or manager.

Give us a time where you have worked as part of a team? Give a situation.

What can you offer sainsburys?

Say your keen and enthusiastic and enjoy meeting people.

two of the awkward questions will be:

What can YOU offer SAINSBURYS?

Tell us about a time when something went wrong, and what did you do to put it right..



Do your homework, find out as much as you can and remember as much as you can.

Also it isnt a test, they want to find out about you.

And wear some appropriate clothing! not Tshirt n Jeans.. you'd be surprised!

and Reading TV and Cinema are not hobbies, they are past times.

I had an interview about two years ago. The guy just asked general, informal questions and then played a video. I had to answer questions (on paper) about the video and customer service, it was a sort of quiz. The interviewer told me the answers to write down when I said I was unsure. 20 minutes after the interview he called to offer me the job (but I decided I didn't want it). The interview took over an hour but they had me waiting 35 minutes before the interviewer had time to interview me. I hope it goes well for you!

Customer service is the key. Read up on that, common scenarios, ways of dealing with difficult individuals, working to orders but/and as part of a team.

All the best sunshine
